This course was exactly what I needed! I have had a passion for peri-natal and postpartum care, but had no idea where to start! Rebeca and Jenna were absolutely amazing, providing thorough knowledge, practical interventions, and clinical pearls throughout the two day course! I truly enjoyed every minute of the course and now feel like I have the resources to get started! I cannot wait to see what the future holds for OB PTs! But I am beyond inspired after this course! Thank you!
I'm leaving this course feeling more informed and more confident to advocate for the roles of PTs and OTs in acute care. I can't wait to get this information into my colleagues and patients hands so they can start receiving the care they so need and deserve.
I feel really empowered to start a postpartum therapy program at my hospital and was provided with many amazing tools to do so. The resources provided are invaluable and being able to pick the brains of other therapists interested in doing the same thing and leaders in the field was absolutely worth the time and money spent on the course. Rebeca's passion for this population and these programs is obviously throughout her presentation.
In this course, Rebeca & Jenna present compelling content that is well-researched in addition to labs & demonstrations of hands-on skills that directly translate to patient care, all while promoting engaging conversation amongst the cohort. Thank you for empowering leaders to build and sustain perinatal & postpartum programs, to take action and join together as we work to advance maternal healthcare.
Rebeca and Jenna are "women Warriors" presenting in depth material with applicable interventions that actually make a difference in a woman's life! I am now so much more knowledgeable and ready to go fight for the women I will encounter and treat.
This was a great course. The intimate setting and small class size were perfect. The external speakers were appropriate and knowledgeable. The length of the course was good. The conversations were amazing! Small groups were effective with tasks that seemed relevant. Examples were real life and generalizable to what I do and what I was looking for. Handout and resources were awesome. Highly recommend this course to acute care rehab and all outpatient pelvic floor therapists.
Thank you so much for this awesome course. As a Pelvic OP PT that hasn't worked Acute in 5 years, I didn't really know what my knowledge gaps were regarding acute mobilization in the antenatal/postnatal period, and this helped me immensely. I feel like the course has made me more comfortable and able to go into an acute space. I feel that I have to tools to help advocate for a PT/OT team at my hospital to start providing maternal support.
This was one of the BEST continuing education courses I have ever taken. Very informative and interesting information. Rebeca did an awesome job at explaining the information in a way that was easy to understand and apply to my previous experiences. Would highly recommend.
Thank you for all of the resources you have shared so that some of the ground work for starting a program has been done for me! I don't like role playing but it was very effective in helping to implement the knowledge into practical application. I also appreciate your emphasis on not worrying about whose technique we are using and making sure we hit all the fine points, but focus on meeting the patient's needs in the moment (acute needs vs outpatient needs are so different). Excellent course and I highly recommend it.
This excellent review is not given lightly. I am very new to the world of maternal care - I have not treated patients in this population yet or experienced birth myself. I say this because I was concerned that I didn't have the background knowledge I would have needed to get the most out of this course. I was thoroughly impressed not only with the amount of information we reviewed but with the instructors willingness to teach and discuss as we did. They did a wonderful job of facilitating a safe learning environment. I was encouraged and inspired listening to peers who are already working in this field sharing about their experiences and enriching my takeaway from the course. I came into this training with only a general desire to support and care for women during this season of life. I am so pleased to say I have finished the course feeling ready and excited to do exactly that!
This course was amazing! I look forward to the day that all health care providers are taught this content in school so they can comprehensively treat women during a time when they are the most vulnerable. The thoughtfulness, time and commitment you put into developing this course cannot be understated. The way you all communicate; the use of PowerPoints combined with rich discussion; the group work and demonstrations; the resources you provide; the case studies and personal experiences that have informed and motivated your work...this information will change the face of maternal health care, curb the statistics and improve people's quality of life in ways I can't begin to imagine. To say that we are part of the same profession is humbling. The two of you are literally changing the world one interview; one course; one patient at a time and now magnifying your results as you are selflessly sharing your content and resources with us. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you!
I am blown away by how amazing and helpful this course was! I have been passionate about the perinatal population but feel like I have been struggling to find my path in how to best serve them. This has given me so many new ideas and tools on how to do that. The instructors are incredibly knowledgeable and share the content in an approachable and empowering way, while also allowing space for the course participants to be interactive, add and contribute from their unique perspectives, and create an environment for true learning and sharing. I would recommend this course to anybody in the perinatal world (and already have!)!
